I have been needing a new sewing box for quite sometime now. I loved the one I had. It was wooden and the top was a giant pin cushion. It opened up and the sides folded out and revealed 3 drawers on each side. It held a lot of things. Sadly, one handle was broken off and it was so big and bulky anyway. I had to sew a button on something yesterday and as I got my sewing box down out of my closet I decided that it was time for a new sewing box.
I ended up using something I already had. I have another bag just like the one above, but a little bigger. Also made by the Paper Studio. I use it to take to school when I am decorating a bulletin board or other project for a teacher. I carry scissors, a stapler, staples, tape, markers, etc. That way I don't have to keep walking in the classroom asking for supplies while she is teaching class.
The photo above is another bag made by the Paper Studio. I honestly bought it because it was 50% off at Hobby Lobby and I was going to carry my colored pencil supplies in for when I go to draw away from my desk. I really haven't used it for that purpose much, so I decided to re-purpose it for my sewing kit.
I used to sew a lot and needed something larger, but for me this is just right now. It holds everything I need for a quick mend or a small sewing project. These scrapbooking totes have so many pockets, you can keep everything organized. Since it is made of fabric, I can put some needles (some threaded) for quick use if I am in a hurry.
Inside I put all my spools of thread. This tote can hold a lot of spools inside.
In this zipper side pocket I have my sewing machine bobbins and attachments.
If you need a new sewing box and you are a patient Hobby Lobby customer like me, just wait until the week they have all the scrapbooking totes and organizers on sale and get one of these for 50% off. I believe this one was originally around $25.00, but I got it 1/2 off.
